Postural problems, growing pains, muscular, back or joint pain in an otherwise healthy child, osteopaths often find, are set up by difficulties experienced in either birth, infancy or early childhood development.
Osteopathy works well to free tension in the body which may be causing back or joint pain, headaches, or growing pains as the child/teenager goes through growth spurts.
Osteopathic treatment with its whole-body approach to treatment can find and treat these early developmental and otherwise undetected issues in the body which are preventing the normal development of the child’s body.
Paediatric Osteopathy looks at and takes into account the developmental stages of the body in children and teenagers. This includes neurological and hormonal development, metabolic changes in growth, as well as development of the musculoskeletal system.
